Prerequisites to Planetary Peace: A Nonkilling Checklist


Francisco Gomes de Matos – TRANSCEND Media Service

A Rhymed Reflection

In a critical perspective, all current political systems would be taught
Their peace-nonviolence-nonkilling common denominators would be sought

The first major required application of planetary peace:
all communities  causing  all forms of interethnic violence to cease

All kinds of nuclear war would be sustainably prevented
ways of coping with urban violence would be  invented

Planetary Peace would be a global program in individual/social transformation
carried out in all school curricula through nonviolence-and-nonkilling education
